4th July 2019 – AWA – BATTLE ROYALE

Posted by Africa Wrestling On June - 30 - 2019

Its now been announced AWA is proud to announce the 22 Man BATTLE ROYALE.

Thursday 4th July 2019 at the Goodwood civic centre.

Event starts at 7:30pm

It is nearly time for the next AWA House of Pain. These regular shows that are held in the Northern Suburbs it always promise to be an action packed affair for the whole family, and this one is no exception.

Having defeated Johnny Palazzio at the previous House of Pain in March, new All Africa Heavyweight Champion Congo King faces his first challenger in Mike Xander. Fresh off a wrestling tour in the USA and ploughing through many local opponents, the talented youngster is hoping he can capture AWA’s most prestigious title and prove he is the best wrestler in South Africa today.

The main event will be the annual Golden Ticket Battle Royale. This 20 man match offers the prize of a Golden Ticket, which grants a wrestler any match at any time. Past winners have used this ticket to win championships and have included stars like The Oz, Sammy Swiegers and Johnny Palazzio. Will one of the AWA veterns win the ticket this year? Or could one of the young graduates of the AWA School of Hard Knocks training school claim victory?

A BIG highlight of this event is that it will be the first South African wrestling show broadcast LIVE on www.FITE.tv

For the first time ever wrestling fans will be able to livestream the House of Pain with wrestlers and fans in attendance being watched by viewers all over the world!

All this and more will be taking place at the Goodwood Civic Centre on 4 July. Tickets are R60 unreserved and R100 reserved. Bookings and enquiries can be made at 082 456 0792

Join the AWA Training Camp!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On May - 7 - 2019

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS IS NOW ACCEPTING ADMISSIONS

The AWA training centre has thrown open its doors to all over the age of 16 years old. ‘We don’t discriminate, we take anyone and everyone in,’ says Shaun Koen, founder of the Africa Wrestling Alliance. It’s true. The organization welcomes both boys and girls, men and women, any colour or religion. ‘The benefits of our style of training are numerous; you don’t need to aspire to be one of our athletes in order to train.’

With its boot-camp style of fitness, members of the AWA Training School receive excellent cardiovascular training in combination with learning the basics of grappling, which is a form of self defense. Wrestling is also a great team sport, so serves as a nurturing environment high in camaraderie and teamwork. ‘It’s like being part of a new family,’ adds Shaun. Sure, if a somewhat overactive one. In truth, despite the high-impact, no holds-barred aesthetic, the reality about wrestling training is that it’s really just good clean fun.

Something for the ladies – The AWA recently opened up an exclusive ‘Diva’ division, targeting like-minded women who would like to cultivate their skills in the ring. Again, levels of aspiration are dependent on the athlete and what goals they have in the realm of wrestling.

Toughening up – Are you an ex-rugby player, gymnast or body builder? Maybe your sporting career has been more intense? Looking to try something new? Maybe take your body to a new limit or your fitness in a new direction. Do you think you have what it takes to be a fully-fledged wrestler?

No experience needed. We can train from a grassroots level all the way to professional if you are committed to the journey.

If you would like to join the AWA School of Hard Knocks training camp, contact us at training@awfwrestle.com or 079 114 6737 (office hours) and we’ll set you down the path to wrestling glory and physical fitness.
